As the world of laparascopic surgery was beginning to evolve in the 1980's, CONMED entered the market with an electronic trocar system which was quickly followed up with one of the world's first blunt tip, disposable trocar systems. Soon thereafter, the Universal Plus® suction/irrigation system was developed and quickly became widely accepted as a premier medical device by our customers. Our VCARE product, developed in concert with its physician inventor, has grown to become a market leading Uterine Manipulator/Elevator designed for use in laparoscopic vaginal hysterectomies.
Today, CONMED has grown its product offering into a complete line of unique endomechanical instrumentation for minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures. It specializes in the development and supply of abdominal access systems such as trocars, laparoscopic manual instrumentation such as dissectors and graspers, ligation and stapling devices and a complete line of laparoscopic suction/irrigation/electrosurgical products.
